Mayer, 36, is a serial dater who has bounced around from celebrity-to-celebrity, including Jennifer Aniston, Jessica Simpson and Taylor Swift to name a few.
But he seemed really committed to Perry, 28, this time around. In a recent interview he talked about how comfortable he felt in the relationship. Rumors even circulated that they were engaged.
It wouldn’t be unlike John to pop the question and then immediately pull back a few days later. Plus the story is thinly sourced at the moment.
News of the break up was first reported by E! News, which has a sketchy track record on these sorts of things. It reported conclusively that Beyonce was pregnant with her second child, remember?
It it only has the usual unnamed “source” to go on.
Give Perry this much credit, their 18-month relationship is the longest Mayer has been tied down in his life. Sadly for Perry, though, she was bouncing back from a horrendous year-long marriage to UK comedian Russell Brand. Now she’s dashed again.
But it may not be over for her. The problem is Mayer has a habit of trash talking the women he’s dated after breaking up with them. Will Katy be the next victim?
